:) Hey i know what your thinking.... why is bread bad for your horse, it has been feed for yonks. I took my horse to the natural path, just for a check over. And he gave me some advice... that i find is very interesting. Ok why is it bad... its because of all the chemicals added into bread these days, to make the bread white... Although if you bake your own (which i Do now!!) its ok...
Same with carrots, and sum veges and fruit you buy from the supermarkets, they are full of chemicals, and its discusting!

So yeah...let me know what you guys think. :shock: :wink:

I can see why store bought plain white bread can be bad for horses. I used to bake our bread and got out of the habit I need to start again, very theraputic. I try to stay away from all people food with our girls. Hay and grass is best :)

I didn't know that either. We give Blu bread and tortillas every now and then. Will he get sick or something?

I know some pig farmers buy truckloads of the old bread from the large bakerys to feed to pigs. I think you would have to feed a bunch of it to get a horse sick.

He wont get sick, if you only feed the odd few pieces. Although less is better. Yeh when he told me, i was kind of in shock... I have been feeding bread for ages, when i was knee high... although thats back in the day lol :lol:

Pigs eat almost anything Vida lol, horses are alil more versiltile... Just the chemicals they put in the loafs... its not the bread its self, just the chemicals and preservatives... its stupid! :roll:

i wonder if the wholemeal or multi grain bread is the same. i feed my guys bread every now and then when we have a bbq or something out there and they are harassing me for something :) as far as carrots and stuff go i usually wash them at home before i take them out cause i figure if people can get sick from all the chemicals then the horses probably can as well

Vidaloco 01-14-2008 05:44 AM

I figure all those preservatives in food are whats keeping me young and good looking :lol: :lol:
